What: INDIE9000 gamejam
When: 31st of May - 2nd of June
Where: Nordkraft, Aalborg

If you've been thinking "I wonder what I'll spend my weekends on", look no further, I have the answer for you! GAMEJAMS!

What is a gamejam?
A gamejam is an event in which a collection of creative people come together for short periods of time, and make games together, based on a theme or specific constraints. A lot of big games got their start at gamejams, such as World of Goo, Spore and Braid.

SpilBar 14 + SpilPrisen 2013 - free bus to Copenhagen!


The bus has broken down - the bustrip is cancelled. Sorry :(
Realistic rendition of what happened:

When I wanted to pick up the minibus, evil game-hating people cut the oil to the servo, making the bus impossible to control. (actually the car just broke down, everyone in Viborg loves games)

So, as a result, the planned roadtrip to SpilBar and SpilPrisen had to be cancelled. We're getting the bus fixed up though, so we'll be back with a vengeance for next SpilBar!
